Celebration Manager

Celebrating pride and the community at large, Marshall organizes logistics of the Black & White Gayla and Tacoma Pride Festival. He collaborates with staff, volunteers, community and board members to ensure each event is special and unique to Tacoma. He also provides support to numerous in-house programs.

Born and raised in Tacoma, Marshall graduated from University of Washington-Tacoma with a degree in Communications. He has spent the last two years transitioning into the nonprofit world to better serve those who are displaced in our community. In 2018, he worked as an event coordinator planning events to raise funds for survivors of domestic violence. 

He continuously supports other local businesses and organizations as a volunteer or patron to build better relationships in the community. He is excited to support the Rainbow Center and LGBTQ+ community as he continues to celebrate queer culture.
